Extraordinary video has emerged of recaptured fugitive Casey White, 38, repeatedly shocking himself with a stun gun, appearing all but oblivious to its impact.
The footage, obtained by DailyMail.com, was filmed several years ago and shows White, wearing a wedding band, toying with the taser at a pawn store.
Wearing jeans, a sleeveless white T-shirt and baseball cap White appears fixated on the stun gun which he charges and re-charges in his hand.
After tentatively testing the voltage on the palm of his hand, White gradually escalates the potential pain.
Again and again, Casey deploys the taser, holding it in his right hand and shooting it at his left arm. The electricity current crackles as he sits on the floor anticipating the shock.
The bolts can be seen, clearly delivering a shock stinging enough to cause White to jump but he shakes off any pain and numbness and simply continues.
DailyMail.com has obtained footage of Casey White, 38, repeatedly shocking himself with a stun gun
He can be seen shocking himself in the arm and chest and appears unbothered by the pain
Again and again, Casey deploys the taser, holding it in his right hand and shooting it at his left arm. The electricity current crackles as he sits on the floor perhaps anticipating the shock
This comes days after he was captured after going on the run with his prison guard lover Vicky White, who killed herself
White was apprehended in Evanston, Indiana, on Monday after 11 days on the run with his prison guard lover Vicky White.
Vicky, 56, shot herself dead as cops moved in on the couple.
In the newly emerged video, Casey appears unperturbed as he stands and steels himself to try the taser out on his own chest. He seems to be working himself up to the task, pacing and flexing his shoulders.
Vicky White, who said she was taking Casey White for a mental health evaluation, ran away with him on April 29
Finally, he deploys the stun gun on his chest, the bolts hitting his T-shirt just above his heart. He recoils at the charge, jumping back and rubbing the area where the electricity hit.
It is unclear what White was hoping to prove with his exercise, whether he was showing his own strength or simply testing that of the stun gun.
Stun guns can vary in voltage between 20,000 and 150,000 volts.
The smaller, which appears to be what White is using on himself, can cause muscle spasms and a dazed mental state.
If applied for three seconds or more they can cause intense pain, mental disorientation and a loss of balance great enough to see the target drop to the ground.
Tasers carried by law enforcement deliver 50,000 volts with a discharge cycle lasting five seconds.
But the weapon in White’s hand seems to have little effect on him.
If anything, the footage hammers home the challenge faced by anyone attempting to take down his 6ft 9in bulk.
Casey White is seen in dashboard camera footage released by police in Indiana being taken into custody on Monday
The pair were caught Monday afternoon after leading US Marshals on a car chase that lasted ‘less than a few minutes’. They had been in Evansville, Indiana, since May 3
The 56-year-old corrections officer was due to retire on the day she absconded with the suspected murderer
The footage comes after he was captured and his prison guard lover Vicky White killed herself.
The couple’s days as fugitives came to an end with Vicky’s death from a gunshot wound moments after their car was rammed off the road and into a ditch.
The pair were carrying $29,000 in cash, four handguns and an AR-15 rifle and were prepared for a shootout when they were captured, an Indiana sheriff said on Tuesday.
The end of the manhunt left authorities trying to piece together what happened during the 11 days that elapsed after Vicky White escorted Casey White from a Florence, Alabama, jail for what she falsely claimed was a mental health evaluation.
She also told her coworkers that she felt ill and planned to see a doctor afterward.
No one realized that the two were missing until around 3.30pm.
The inmate and Vicky White appeared to have had a jailhouse romance, Alabama authorities said last week. Despite sharing a last name, they were not related.
As for Vicky’s role in the escape, Vanderburgh County sheriff Dave Wedding said: ‘He was not forcing her. It was a mutual relationship.’
At the time of the breakout, Casey White was serving a 75-year prison sentence for attempted murder and other offenses and was awaiting trial on charges of stabbing a woman to death during a 2015 burglary.
If convicted, he could get the death penalty.
Investigators believe the pair spent about six days holed up at a motel in Evansville.
Authorities discovered wigs intended to hide their identities.
The two were found 219 miles away from the jail they left in Alabama on April 29. The manhunt spanned three different states
These are all of the weapons the couple had in their Cadillac when they were rammed into a ditch by police on Monday
The couple had just $29,000 of the $90,000 Vicky had withdrawn when they were caught on Monday
Sheriff Wedding said investigators do not believe the two had relatives or other contacts in Evanston which is southwest Indiana, close to both the Kentucky and Illinois borders.
‘They thought they’d driven long enough. They wanted to stop for a while, get their bearings straight and then figure out the next place to travel,’ the sheriff said.
Authorities closed in on them after the manager of a car wash reported that a man closely resembling the giant 260-pound Casey White had been recorded by a surveillance camera getting out of a pickup truck.
Investigators said they located the pickup, then learned that the pair may have switched to a Cadillac, which was then spotted outside a motel nearby.
They arrived in Evansville on May 3 and received assistance by a local man whose identity remains unknown. He booked them into the $44-a-night Motel 41, so they avoided going to the front desk where they might have been recognized.
Casey White told investigators after his capture that ‘he was probably going to have a shootout at the stake of both of them losing their lives,’ the sheriff said.
Audiotape of a 911 call shows Vicky blamed Casey for their capture in her last moments. ‘You had to stay in some f***ing motel,’ she is heard saying.
The inmate appeared by video Tuesday in an Indiana courtroom, where he waived extradition. He was sent back to Florence, Alabama and appeared in court there on Tuesday.
He was remanded to the William E. Donaldson Correctional Facility, a maximum security lock-up near Bessemer, Alabama.
Vicky White, assistant director of corrections at the Lauderdale County jail, had put in for retirement ahead of the escape, and the day of the breakout, April 29, was her last day of work.
She had been honored by her workmates who voted her employee of the year for the fifth time in her career.
